Registration Info

Children between the ages of 5 and 18 who can successfully get themselves from one side of the pool to the other are welcome to join the swim team.  Joining the swim team is different than taking swimming lessons and those who join are expected to have some swimming skills.  It is the coach’s discretion to determine if potential swimmers have the necessary skills to be eligible to join the team. Swimmers who do not quite meet the above criteria, may be referred to lessons in order to ready them for next year’s season.

Registration packets are available under Documents.  Swimmers must fill out a registration packet and a USA Swimming form (If a swimmer qualifies for free or reduced lunches please use the Outreach registration).  Both may be returned to the coaches at the pool or mailed to  Black Hills Gold Swim Team PO Box 703.
